    Far too many people confuse forgiveness with toleration. When we forgive we heal people, but this does not mean we must tolerate evil or sin. In Liberal churches there is such a demand for tolerance that the message of forgiveness becomes meaningless. In Conservative churches the belief that you should tolerate the actions of those you have forgiven forces many people to not embrace forgiveness. This is because we try to diminish Jesus by negating attributes we don’t like or don’t understand. Thus Jesus has been made into a peace loving Hippie who just wants you to be happy, but never takes time to punish and thus lacks the power and authority to offer salvation. And this is important, when we forgive our enemies in a small way we mirror the salvation act of Jesus on the cross, which was the great work of atonement, or to use another word forgiveness. Notice that he forgave one criminal that hung next to him because of repentance and through that act of repentance the criminal was ushered into the kingdom of heaven. But the other criminal, the one who mocked the Lord, while still forgiven in a general sense (atonement was for everyone) was not offered any toleration by the Lord. When the Lord said Forgive them for they know not what they do he was also speaking to the unrepentant criminal.

    One of the great failings of American history was that at the end of the Civil War we did not repatriate all Blacks back to Africa. This is a sentiment born out of seeing too many wanton acts of black violence, the failure of black men to be involved in their families, the lack of self-respect among black women, the gross entitlement of elitist *****’s (the blaze edited my chosen word and frankly I think that is despicable, I said here neeggro, a word chosen because that is exactly how they define themselves when they take advantage of things like the neeggro college fund, funds that educated women like this one), and the inability of the black community to live in a post racial society where equality should be a matter of what you do, not what you are given.
    The sad truth is that anywhere a group of black people are gathered you can not trust them anymore. Most would never do anything, most are perfectly reasonable and decent, but you simply have no way of knowing. The really sad thing is that all the claims made by white supremacist groups about the black’s inability to integrate, the ruin blacks bring to their own communities and as is evident from women like those in this article, the inability of elitist blacks to be educated is all being made true. Simply put the worst of the black community is being allowed to define the whole community while the majority sit back and do nothing to provide a separate narrative.

    there are more than 6 millions graves and a world war that proves you wrong.

    I can promise you more of your treasure goes to Arab states supporting terror than what goes to Israel.

    Not even close. As an American citizen you have certain national rights that no one else, does, including recent immigrants, visiting students, etc. If you are Mexican you have national rights, national rights are just that, rights defined as belonging to groups based on national origin

    I am not a Zionist, nor do I believe that Israel has a right to the land based on ancestral ties. I believe Israel has a right to the land because they possess it, they care for it and because it was given to them as a sort of recompense for the holocaust. However I cant escape the biblical prophetic visions of a new Jerusalem. While the Jews have been in possession of the land for decades they have not defined it as a Jewish land, but rather a land where in Jews are free to live. This bills returns for the first time since the diaspora an actual, religious connection to the Jewish state.

    Whatever the reason, politics, religion, prophecy, this is a very interesting development. And what will be more interesting is to see how the world reacts to a new Jewish state. Is this a catalyst for something more to come?

    There is no greater threat to America than Obama.In six short years he has done what the Nazis, the Communists, and Islamic terrorists have failed to do. Bring desolation and ruin to America.

    I don’t think you are a bad Christian, just not fully catechized in the faith (And I dont here mean dogma, but the simple, basics of the faith). Let me put it this way, if Man was capable of being better with no direct intervention on behalf of God then there was no reason for Jesus to die at all. This would make his death capricious and cruel. Further Jesus specifically said things that contradict what you are saying here. The only way to the father is through the son. This could not be made to mean that Jesus was only an example of an exceptionally good person. Either Jesus was who he claimed to be or he was not. If he was then there is no way you can be correct and if he was not then his place as moral teacher is tarnished, meaning that he did not provide a lesson t hat any other man could not have done.

    Not quite. Jesus never spoke out about any other money corruption in such an extreme manner, this was not merely a stab, it was a moment of directed anger. This was not about money corruption, but about what was happening to the temple, his fathers house. Remember that Jesus overturned the tables, made a scourge, scattered the money and sent the livestock running in a mass of confusion but he took curious care in telling the merchants to release the dove. Why? The atoning sacrifice was regulated by custom, the unblemished lamb was the greatest sacrifice and the most expensive, but the poor were allowed to buy two doves for atonement. When the child Jesus was presented to the temple it would have been doves that were sacrificed, ceremonially removing him from the obligations of the Priesthood. This was a remarkable tender moment amid otherwise anger and confusion. This reinforces that it had nothing to do with financial corruption and everything to do with the deeper spiritual meaning. Simply put he was stopping people from corrupting the house of God.

    ObozMustGo, No matter what Nilsson’s opinion’s are on other forums what he said here had nothing to do with any of the things you went off about. And I will completely agree that his views on these topics cross the line… But for the sake of everyone else, if you have an issue with his views on Israel then deal with them in posts about Israel. Otherwise it only makes you appear angry and spiteful to those who may not have read anything else.

    I have noticed that too. I like Beck, but his Mormonism has always troubled me simply because it is a cult. It is a very big one, but it is in fact a cult that stands outside the Bible. Part of me wonders if the reason we read of so many new ways to look at Jesus on this site have to do with that.

    And despite this guys assertions the vast majority of sermons, devotionals and books have to do with the life of Jesus. Here is what you need to know about this pastor… He says people get Jesus wrong because they put their own ideas onto Christ. But he has a better answer because he puts his own ideas on Jesus and his are more right than yours.

    You can not be Christian and support Obama.Everything he does is designed to curtail the voice of the church. In the case of immigration reform supporting Obama does two things, it further erodes the freedom of the church and it ensures that more illegal immigrants will DIE, because he just made it even more profitable for the gangs and cartels that smuggle them across. One of the few things preventing more crossings was the threat of deportation. With that gone America will begin to see a wave unlike any before.

    Not even close. To be a Roman citizen meant to claim the greatest protection there was. taxation was seen as a noble obligation, not the goal. In fact on more than one occasion the apostle Paul plead his Roman citizenship specifically because of the protections it afforded.

    McConnell is an old school politico. His primary goal is to get in power and maintain that power. This last election was a clear mandate from the people that Obama’s legacy is to be rejected. If left to his own devices McConnell would belittle different from a liberal, but he will not do anything to risk losing power, and so can be trusted to follow the will of the others, at least to a certain degree. I also think McConnell, while he doesn’t like Cruz, understands that his presence in the Senate played a key role in firing up the people to oust the democrats. In other words McConnell wants votes, Reid by comparison wanted only liberal social engineering. You can always trust a politician who only wants votes to do, well what voters say.

    Washington State is perhaps the most beautiful state in the Union, Geography wise. But the liberal filth that dominate the state make me sad to have any family connection there.

    Do not forget that While evil can not stand against Jesus Christ, the evil that we allow can certainly stand against us. In this case the evil is our creation, made from to much ambivalence, to long of not caring, too long keeping sermons politically correct. I ask this with all sincerity Is your faith strong enough to be imprisoned? Do you have Paul and Peter Faith or the faith of the young ruler or Judas?

    “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” – 2 Thessalonians 2:3

    But take heart for we are told also…

    “While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled”. John 17:12

    I am not Catholic, but I admire something that Pope John Paul once. “Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter People and ‘Hallelujah’ is our song”.

    He lived through the Nazi expansion and the holocaust, he saw evil first hand. We may lose this fight but so what. We have already won the war. Those you see with such anger and hate will either repent and be blessed or they will perish in their punishment. Every one of us is already dead, the only thing that really matters is that through Jesus Christ some of us have had death overturned. So hold the line, do not waver, stand firm and resolute in your faith, know the real enemy, work to thwart him on earth and work to thwart his agents and emissaries, the willing and the deluded. But remember that some people are already lost with no hope. To those who are unrepentant shake the dust from your sandals and leave them to their fate. Only god can save them, but always be open to being an instrument for his use.

    I can/t say and wont say if this is a sign of end times, Terrible people have done terrible things in times past but I do know one thing for sure, everything that is happening today has been clearly and unmistakable foreseen in the pages of the Bible. The question is not are the signs happening, but rather do the signs point to the final end times.

    The sad truth is these children, impressionable as they may be are becoming our enemies. If you love your children, if you love your country ask yourself, do you have what it takes to put an end to this enemy, just as past enemies have been put down. While preaching the return to America do you also have what it takes to put these young people in the ground in a Civil War? We are not there yet, but if we allow this madness to continue that is where our children will be.

    1: Stop sending your children to liberal Universities
    2: Start taking your children to church
    3: Stop being afraid of the PC police. Call these people for what they are, traitors and subversives.
    4: Stop allowing moral relativism to infect our culture. All things are connected, gay marriage and abortion reduce the value of procreative life which in turn diminishes the value of family which in turn reduces the value we place on any institutions.
    5: Lear what it might take to stop this or if we cant stop it, learn to make something new. Perhaps it is time to stop waving the American flag and start waving a new flag.
